Default Easy Way to Nose Down Grip

I posted a text explanation of how I get a nose down grip a year ago, but this video I made is new, so rather than bury it in an old post I'll put it here. You can feel the difference of this grip in seconds. I hope this helps someone as much as it helped my drive a year ago.

I actually like this. get the disc on that locked and loaded position and it doesnt slip out. i could see people using this technique tho and turning their disc more than they want until they get it dialed in. im gonna try this on the course today when i want to throw a backhand with less hyzer and more distance.

Hey TBFG, thanks for the re-post. I read that original thread, and have been locking my grip in this way every since. Gives me a consistent grip no matter the driver, and has just become part of my routine.

Thanks for the video, tried this yesterday and will definitely be making this a part of my routine as before I didn't really have a defined way to go about establishing my grip. I used to just grip and adjust until it felt comfortable but this method actually slants and sets my fingers a bit differently but it definitely feels better.

what do you guys do on wider rim drivers? I find using this method for say a boss that my index finder catches the inner edge of the wing at the last knuckle. I have been using this grip and then loosening my pinky a bit and getting the index in a bit more.

I'm stubborn. When I'm throwing a wider rim disc, like my Nuke SS, I use this same method to achieve the grip, I just cram my fingers in there as far as I can. I have to focus more on keeping my fingers tight under there so the disc doesn't slip out early, but it usually works. You have to be doubly careful to keep your fingertips and the disc dry to avoid slippage. Not everyone is comfortable with a really wide rim. I'm nervous because I just ordered a Salient Discs Prometheus, which has one of, if not the widest rim of any disc out there. May have been $ down the drain, but I couldn't resist the supposed flight of the thing.
